My eth0 device is not detected during boot.

I have a Motorola SB4200 USB cable modem, and I have to reboot my
system four or five times until Fedora Core 1 recognizes it fine and
works fine.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-20 02:45:10 EST
do you have kudzu installed?
# rpm -V kudzu
Comment 3 Faye Valentine 2004-02-20 15:56:11 EST
Hello, thanks for your answer, I have a standard desktop installation,
 I added the kernel source and the kernel doc, but I haven't
recompiled it.
rpm -V kudzu, doesn't display any message (extracted from "man kudzu":)

       The general form of an rpm verify command is

        rpm {-V|--verify} [select-options] [verify-options]

        Verifying  a  package compares information about the installed
files in
       the package with information about the files  taken  from  the
       metadata  stored  in  the  rpm database.  Among other things,
       compares the size, MD5 sum, permissions, type, owner and group
of  each
       file.   Any discrepencies are displayed.  Files that were not
       from the package, for example, documentation files excluded on
       lation using the "--excludedocs" option, will be silently ignored.

rpm -q kudzu displays


	I've upgraded to kudzu-1.1.40, with the same problem, so I downgraded
it to kudzu-1.1.36-1
	again: rpm -e kudzu; rpm -ivh kudzu(...) from the CD (md5sum -
correct, linux mediacheck 		- correct).

I've also tried to remove it from the startup services, but my eth0
device wasn't detected, so I've configured it as a service again, and
now is running after configuring local disks (?) (sorry, english is
not my native language... and I don't know if it should be run before
or after configuring the hd(s)). "Probing for new hardware" is
working, not fine, but is working... not at the first boots, but after
several reboots (CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE) (CTRL+ALT+DEL) works fine, I
don't know why.

kudzu should be installed, shouldn't be?

By the way, Motorola SB4200 USB cable madem emulates an eth device...
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-23 05:00:03 EST
$ ls /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/*kudzu*
Comment 5 Faye Valentine 2004-02-23 10:06:19 EST
Thanks Harald
In /usr/lib/python2.3 there's only an empty directory called site-packages

ls /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/*kudzu*
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-23 10:52:15 EST
hmm... which version of python do you use?

$ rpm -q python
Comment 7 Faye Valentine 2004-02-23 17:37:16 EST
rpm -q python

Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-24 04:07:09 EST
please try this:

$ python -c "import kudzu;" && echo OK
Comment 9 Faye Valentine 2004-02-24 19:07:58 EST
I've done it, and OK appeared.
Before, sometimes appear this message at boot time:
Probing for new hardware /etc/rc5.d/S05 kudzu: line 97: 4515
Segmentation fault /usr/sbin/kudzu $KUDZU_ARGS -t 30

Now I get always this message:
Probing for new hardware /etc/rc5.d/S05 kudzu: line 97: 4520
Segmentation fault /usr/sbin/kudzu $KUDZU_ARGS -t 30

I removed kudzu as a service  :(    and I have to reboot several times
before my eth0 is recognized... again.
Comment 10 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-25 04:59:46 EST
Segmentation fault /usr/sbin/kudzu
That explains everything :)
Comment 11 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-25 05:00:35 EST

Comment 12 Harald Hoyer 2004-02-25 05:01:27 EST
Please try the kudzu- packages at:

These may resolve some of your issues.
Comment 13 Faye Valentine 2004-02-25 18:22:29 EST
Thank you very much Harald, kudzu works fine now, but I had to reboot
three times before my eth0 is recognized, like when I avoid using
kudzu as a service...
